  • The relief that a mother gets from her baby’s suckling is not karma free.
    She is required to return the favour to child’s daddy. Blow him till the vagina is unusable or bring him a sex surrogate for that much period.
    Muhammad’s 4 marriage shitt still can’t be defended logically. ��
    If the baby dies or the mother has no milk then it means that the father doesn’t deserve the oral gratitude from child’s mother.
    Similarly, if a husband deliberately stops fucking his wife (even for a dick rejuvenation process), he should arrange for a surrogate dick for her.
    Sex toys can be used as surrogates in all scenarios btw.
    The couples who get separated by distance quite too often, are not meant to be together anymore. At least one of them is meant to be with someone else even if it is for a short duration. The spirits will fuck up the lives of such couples untill one of them does the cursed cheating. For longterm relationships, at least 3 serious breakups are mandatory requirement for spirits to play their part.
    Souls don’t respond well to seperation from any of the host’s previous partners. Soul of a cheater tends to move the host away from the one he/she cheated on (cheat-victim). Spirit of the cheat-victim tends to draw him/her closer to the cheater instead.

  • With all the changes that happen during pregnancy, it can feel that your body is no longer your own. Yet having sex can help restore your body confidence and positive feelings about yourself. For a lot of women, it’s a time in life where [sex] is a really important part of who they are, their relationship and how they feel. Although pregnancy is usually a happy time, it’s normal to worry about things like work, finances and how your life will change after your baby is born. Oxytocin, the love hormone that your body releases when you have an orgasm, can help to negate some of that stress and also help you sleep better. Improved connections. Having frequent sex now will help strengthen the intimate relationship and bond you have with your partner and establish a healthy habit for the future. It’s important to connect with your partner now while you have time because you’re going to need that connection once the baby is born. If you’re full-term or past your due date, having sex won’t put you into labor, but it can help your body prepare because semen contains prostaglandins which can help ripen the cervix. I got all these tips from Bio tex clinic I do hope that they were of help.

  • I’m gonna stick with my wife’s doctors theory, go on as long as you both are comfortable with sex,but leave room for him to deliver the baby
